And...for all of Kuehne's distance, how many events has he won or will he win? It should be instructive that Tiger Woods' driving distance (which is mostly carry, BTW) as it rates vs. the rest of the Tour has worsened as he's become more dominant. Tiger woke up and realized that there's more to life on a golf course than a 300 yd carry off the tee. We might label Mike Weir as "exhibit B".
That being said, if we could accurately track carry, I think we would find that gap between carry and distance today is much smaller than the gap between carry and distance in past eras. (To put it another way, yesterday's golfers relied more on roll for their distance.) That is my understanding of how this new equipment is supposed to work.
